MSCMS: Login doesn't log in

Hi,

I've got a problem when logging in to use the web editor. I have set up four channels, one for each host header and set up the SCA to map the channels to the host headers.

The sites are open for reading for all users. Editing requires login with NT authentication. When I login using Autosession.ManualLogin to enable the user to go to edit mode things go weird.

The login sequence goes well but when I return to the site I'm still not logged in! The AUTH_TOKEN doesn't appear to have been set.

BUT - If I do the above when logged on locally on the server it works just fine.

Can anybody help me out?

Best regards,

Anders

Not 100% sure on this, but you should check the IIS security settings for the NR directory, or any directories you are using as an entry point into your cms sites.  If they are set to allow anonomous access, CMS will not authenticate.  This may only be when using windows authentication though, and not the autosession.manuallogin method.

To force CMS to authenticate without changing the IIS settings for your NR directory, have your site entry point as a redirect page in another directory that has anon access disabled.

Thanks all,

But I've found a solution thanks to a news group. The problem (or bug as I'd preffer to call it) occurred because I had underscores "_" in my host header names. When I removed the underscores it worked perfectly.

Regards,

Anders
